Greetings Max Sled readers and fellow sledders! My name is Mitch Sebastian, I’m 21 years old from Spencer, Iowa… yeah that’s right, Iowa. It is my honor to be joining you throughout the winter as we travel the Midwest chasing the checkers of the USXC (United States Cross Country) national series.
Now that the leaves have fallen and the nights are cold, we are full steam ahead getting ready for race season. As I write this first journal entry, my race sleds are being built in Minocqua, Wisconsin, by our master mechanic Patrick Trapp. Patrick works in the R&D facility for Yamaha, and still supports us 110%. His attention to detail is second to none. This season I’ll be riding 1050cc 4 stroke Vipers on the ice tracks and a ZR6000 RR XC 2 stroke on the traditional ditch cross-country races as well as the I500.
I’m really excited to be the Max Sled racer this year and I look forward to keeping you up to date as the season progresses. Also be sure to Like us on Facebook: Mitch Sebastian Motorsports, follow me on Instagram, mitch_sebastian, and check out MitchSebastianMotorsports.com (launching soon) for all the latest action.
